This Baby Owl Ink Pot or Paint Pot Holder was created with calligraphers in mind, but painters and artists could also use it for holding paints. The baby owl shape was cut out using a scroll saw and then the holes drilled for the ink/paint pots. The overall size is 5 ½” x 4”. This particular example has a large screw top pot and 6 medium screw top pots. The finished product has been hand sanded using 5 different grits of sandpaper from 160 to 600 for a smooth wood finish. It was then stained with Red Mahogany stain, and then the top is finished with 3 coats of Polycrylic. The Polycrylic gives the wood a coating that resists ink staining.
